Qigong: Cultivating body, breath & mind

Two years in the writing, this new book covers the underlying philosophies and history of the many Chinese practices that come under the broad umbrella term qigong. It draws both on the traditional wisdom and modern understanding of body, breath and mind cultivation. There are links to dozens of videos demonstrating a whole range of qigong practices.


Live well live long

Live Well Live Long explores the wonderful Chinese tradition of nourishing life (yangsheng). Continuously developed over more than 25 centuries, it serves as a workshop manual for the care of the human body, mind and spirit. Its teachings can help us improve our health and lengthen our lives through cultivating our mind, emotions, diet, exercise, sleep, sexual behaviour and much more.

I have practised and taught qigong for very many years now. I believe it to be one of the very best ways of cultivating body, breath and mind and harmonising them seamlessly into a transformative and healing state. Qigong offers not only better physical health and wellbeing but also a grounded, resilient and expansive spirit - what the Chinese call heart-mind.
